Six months ago I began going to therapy. I can truly say that it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life; right next to uprooting my family and moving across the country. I decided to break the stigma of a black Christian woman going to therapy. There was just entirely too much I’ve carried that was worthy of unpacking.

The other day I took my girls with me to Target to window shop and of course, in typical Target fashion, I left with more than I intended to. I purchased a couple of bras and a few pairs of underwear, which is rare for me. I usually lean toward a $9.99 pack of cotton briefs from Walmart and bra from the clearance section and make it last a long as humanly possible.

One day, I looked at myself in the mirror.  This time was much different than the rest. I stopped passing the image in my reflection by like a stranger on the street and actually looked myself in the eyes. I broke down in tears and finally saw myself as beautiful. Not because someone else told me I was, but because I was witness to it with my own eyes.

One of the biggest lessons I learned this past year was to pack light and not hold on to things that have no real value. I was forced into this lesson when preparing for a huge transition in my life as I journeyed across the country to my birthplace. The memory of how I landed in California is still fresh in my mind both figuratively and literally.

They say the first step to getting help is admitting that you have a problem.  Well, my name is Erin and I am NOT a “morning person.” I’ve always told people that I’m literally late to life.  If I’m ever on time, you’d probably be shook. My bed and I have an inseperable bond that […]

I can still remember the day…not like it was yesterday, but as if it was a faint memory of what I wished was a borrowed past. A little over two years ago, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that unexpectedly changed my life. Latent Autoimmune Deficiency in Adults, better known as Diabetes Type 1 or Type 1.5 in my case. After ignoring several symptoms and battling within myself to figure out what was going on with me, I finally decided to seek help and began to learn how to navigate my new life with a chronic illness.

“The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works” -Psalms 145:8-9 A lot of us live our lives ashamed of ourselves and ashamed to seek God’s face in times of despair or while living […]

Over time I’ve learned that constant reflection is necessary to keep me grounded.  This morning, I reflected on how far God has brought me and my family. As I think back, He’s brought us a long way in all aspects of our lives.  I was overjoyed with simply knowing that alone.   It’s so easy […]

know that in most families it’s tradition to wear frilly dresses and take Easter pictures with your siblings. Oh, and don’t forget about those awful socks with the ribbon and fluff on top. Do y’all remember the hot combs on the stove the night before service while the entire kitchen smelled like burned hair and Blue Magic?
